In my city, there are major gay pride festivities happening this weekend. Rainbow flags everywhere.
Now I am happy for them, but I can't help feeling just a bit jealous, and angry.
Jealous, because they can express their sexuality so openly and flagrantly here, without fear, and actually with support from the city and society. Whereas, we can't.
Angry because, if you look at history, the LGBT movement threw so many groups under the bus, just so that they could have their silly parade, silly floats and prance around in silly salmon-pink muscle shirts.
Is that petty?
